Welcome to IWETHEY!

New I am reminded of those green CD pens.
You might remember the ones: you painted the edge green and it was supposed to prevent some mis-reflected data or some such crap. Local electronics mag got hold of one such a pen and could not, of course, hear a difference. Then they got creative: if you did only one half of a disc's edge, wouldn't you hear a modulation of the disc's speed, reflecting alternating "repaired" and "unrepaired" data?

They could detect nothing. Of course. :-)

New Are you sure there was nothing wrong with your ears?

The first thing I did was play one of my favorite SACDs: Virgil Thomson's The River and The Plow That Broke the Plains - Leopold Stokowski conducting The Symphony of the Air. Then I removed the SACD, treated it with CD Stoplight and waited the required 5 minutes for the ink to dry and put it back in the player. Right away I noticed a considerable increase in volume! Once I lowered the volume to a level comparable to the before treatment level I also noticed the bass was warmer, the performing space was "airier", the outline of the instruments seemed more defined and the dynamic attacks were sharper. It appears to smooth out the sound, increase ambiance and make percussive attacks more exciting. All this from a green ink ring around the outside of the disc, amazing!
New What is an "airier" performing space? What is a "performing space"? Why is "airier" good?

New No clue. But then I buy the $5 cables (and I never got one of those green pens either) :-/
New A problem with reviews, is so many are fake . . .
. . paid for by the vendor, or are by idiots who don't know what they're talking about.
New Hmmm.. audio, politics ..in bed together now. Incest!
New Don't know, or don't care?
When someone says USB cables "reduce glare", what does he think he means? If it's somebody in marketing making shit up I can at least understand it. But how deluded do you need to be to think that means something?

New Well, whole subcultures are based on delusion . . .
. . you have to BELIEVE!
New I happen to know my ears are quite good.
Which is why I love my EarStudio for mobile audio and my Vifa speakers for the lounge room.

But I digress. The test was by an electronics magazine who bought a CD Pen as the vendor wouldn't give them one to review. So they did the review without any interference from the vendor. :-)

try the same with AC/DC thunderstruck
what you have is flat, atonal strings. Sound track for "fist full of dynamite" was much better.
